Please see a list of all available templates at http://buyvm.net/openvz-templates.php
As of June 2013 all OpenVZ plans support vSwap.
All virtual servers have been retroactively updated to have a 1:1 ratio for memory:vswap.
Yes. Please see our guide located at ipsec
Upgrades as well as downgrades are transparent, no data is modified and no reboot is necessary to adjust resources.
PPP/TUN/TAP is enabled upon provisioning.
Chances are another client already requested a common module and it has already been enabled globally. If you find one that we're missing just open a support ticket.
KVM isn't always better, it simply gives a lot more control to the end user. You're given complete control of your kernel, allowing you to encrypt your filesystem, install a custom kernel and many other useful things like that.
You're able to install FreeBSD, Windows, as well as all versions of Linux available.
Unlike OpenVZ based VPSes, even idle KVM's have a running overhead of a few % of CPU. With this, we're restricted in how many we can allocate to a node.
Our KVM nodes are built smaller than our OpenVZ nodes so spare space is at a premium. If you feel you're going to need a lot of space, you should look into our storage focused KVM plans.
You can see an active list of all available ISO's at http://buyvm.net/kvm-isos.php
The current version of our panel doesn't allow users to do this on their own.
With that being said, you're welcome to ticket us requesting an ISO (include a link if possible too!) and we'll pull it into our system within 24 hours. Most imports get done within a couple hours.
The power clients have over their KVM also involves the network interface, for optimal network performance please switch your NIC to virtio. The default realtek NIC (required for windows initially) is the poorest performing and has a technological cap of 100mbit.
Nope. These are straight VPS servers with very large space allocations.
Other than that, treat it as a regular KVM VPS.
Short answer: Yep.
Long answer: As mentioned, if it's available on our KVM plans, it's available on our storage plans.
